Review: Snow Angel by Ronica Black


Note: This ARC was provided by Bold Strokes Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Reclusive bestselling novelist Maggie Douglas's quiet life in the mountains changes forever when she rescues Ellie Falcon, a famous and renowned actress. All Ellie wants is privacy and anonymity, the very same things that Maggie has held close for years. Even as they try to keep their distance, there's a powerful attraction between them, one that borders on something much deeper than either one of them expected. But the real world is difficult for someone as in demand as Ellie to run from completely and what she and Maggie shared in their cabin could be too fragile for it to survive the harsh realities of the life Ellie leads. 

Snow Angel is a standalone novella from author Ronica Black about Maggie Douglas  and Ellie Falcon, two women well-respected in their fields but both handling their fame differently. Maggie uses a pseudonym to write her bestselling novels and lives peacefully up in the mountains, while Ellie is trapped in the hustle and bustle of a life in show business. There wasn't this immediate kinship between the two of them, especially since Ellie has taught herself to be wary of people, believing they always want something in return. In a short period of time, they learn to trust each other, and soon, there's a confession of feelings.

This was written quite well and I especially liked the first three quarters of the story, since this is where we see the relationship between Ellie and Maggie evolving. When things take a turn for the dramatic, it reaches a point where you almost feel as if you're watching a soap opera, complete with all the angst. Love doesn't really have a set time table, so it is quite possible that these two women did fall in love with one another while they were trapped in the snowstorm. I was just a bit wary about the intensity of that love and how they handled what happened when reality stepped in. Overall, I'm giving Snow Angel four stars. ♥
